JCM have just landed this Stacer 525 Seamaster Sports runabout that presents well and would be ideal for bay fishing and enjoying time out exploring our beautiful waterways with family and friends. Escape the working week rat race and find your happy place this weekend!
These big runabouts offer a massive cockpit with high topsides and generous beam, providing ample room for the fisher and crabber in the family, with space for crab pots to be baited and stored. As the photos show, this boat has an excellent small upgrade made where by two panels on the floor mid ship can be accessed offering loads more storage underfloor.
Two pedestal seats and a rear lounge provide seating for 5 people comfortably and we like that the back rests of the 2 pedestal seats move fore and aft, and as a bonus if the rear lounge isn’t required it can simply be pulled out. The transom has gunwale mounted rod holders and a bait board and the underside, a boats battery is housed in the battery box with an isolation switch fitted.
The helm is comfortable for us “tallies” with the dash fitted with a comprehensive array of engine instrumentation and the sounder has been upgraded with a 7” colour screen Garmin echoMAP 70DV combo GPS/Sounder. Over head protection from the sun is offered with the canopy and this also can be zipped open to provide some ventilation and helps make easier access to the bow for deploying the ground tackle.
The rig is powered by a Mariner (Mercury) 90Hp 2 stoke delivering more than adequate power with the family aboard and are known for their reliability and affordable servicing costs. The engine has recorded 240 hours on the hour meter fitted to the dash and is backed with a limited BIA engine warranty for buyer’s confidence.On the Water
The rig is trailered on an in house Stacer built single axle trailer and had 2 new light ruck tyres, new rims, new brake discs and wheel bearings fitted in November 2017. Like all trailers sold through JCM unless otherwise advertised, they are sold road worthy and compliant to ensure your on-road towing safety.
This big runabout offers excellent buying when factoring her condition and accessories and if you are looking at comparable brands like Quintrex, Bluefin, Brooker and Stessco, we welcome you down to JCM to inspect this Stacer 525 Seamaster Sports runabout.
When it comes to used boats, it’s likely your watercraft is going to be your second or third largest investment behind your house and car. This is the reason John Crawford Marine goes to extensive lengths to ensure every boat that rolls out of our Brisbane boat yard goes through a range of comprehensive checks and maintenance audits before it is even listed as a used boat for sale.
This means when you walk into our Brisbane boat dealership, you know every boat is quality assured, meaning you can get on the water quicker.
Private boat sales are great, but what are you actually buying?
Don’t run the gauntlet – with us it’s clear sailing!
Now don’t get us wrong, we’re not suggesting for a second that you don’t look around for a great price on a boat, in fact we encourage it! We just want to make sure that everyone on the water is safe, happy and doesn’t put their boat (or their friends and family) in any type of danger.
Unless you know what to look for – hidden mechanical problems, leaks, incorrect or inferior screw & bolts, etc for fixes – there’s a possibility your dream boat will quickly turn into a money pit.
